A very good place to stay in the centre of town. It is strictly not a B&B because they do not serve breakfast (we knew this in advance, so no problem), but all the facilities are there to have breakfast in the room. This place very well located in the centre right by the red-light district, you can reach from... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights here. Check in was very easy as keys were in lock box out front. David stopped by to make sure all was good. The space is more than big enough for two people. The location is incredible. We were a 5 minute walk from Central Station and located right on one of the... More

Arrived on the last night of Sail Amsterdam, so things were really hopping. David's directions from the Central Station were perfect. Rooms are a very nice size. Great location for exploring the city. Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. If/when I return to Amsterdam, this is my first choice!

We stayed here for four nights in late July. We stayed in the front room and had a great view of the canal. The best aspect of this B&B was our experience dealing directly with the owner and host, David. He promptly responded to inquiries via email and was always available to answer questions. The room itself was very clean... More

We were so thankful that we came across Velvet Amsterdam for our stay. First, the location could not have been better. It's just a short five minute walk to Central Station (which is connected to the airport -- 15 minutes) and by tram line to other areas of town (for museums, etc.). We took a one day trip to Brugge... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The accommodation has a private entrance and is on the first floor (without lift) recently renovated canal house, which dates from 1930. I have two room one with canal view and other is on at the back of the house. The room has a private shower and toilet, directly accessable from the room; TV, DVD player, free WI-FI, a double bed, fridge, coffee and tea facilities. Breakfast is served in the room. Weekly and monthly rate available. In this rate breakfast is not included. The B&B is located in the old town centre of Amsterdam, only a 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station. Most attractions are at walking distance. Museum Square (Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum) can be reached within 10 minutes by tram number 2 or 5. From Central Station you can take local trams and buses and national and international train services. The owner speaks English, Dutch and some French.If you have any questions, just ask. Hope to welcome you soon in our B&B. ... more   less
